Blogger Chip Northrup of No Fracking Way has his distinct views on Ohio's "frackquakes," the name he has has given to about a dozen small quakes that may have been triggered by hydraulic fracturing or fracking in Mahoning County.
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources has ordered Texas-based Hilcorp Energy to cease its drilling on two pads in Poland Township, about 15 miles southeast of Youngstown.
There are no injection wells nearby that might have triggered the quakes, the state agency said.
The ODNR investigation continues.
